By the wikipedia definition of 4GL and 5GL, I'd say Python is neither.  And
it's not a VHLL either, again according to the wikipedia definition.  But
IMO it is too high level to be a traditional 3GL too.

Perhaps "Scripting language" is the best general category we have that
Python fits into.  But I hope not.
